Moon ♒ Aquarius
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 98% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 30 July 2036 at 02:56.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2036 after 1 day on 7 August 2036 at 02:49.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 452 of Meeus index or 1405 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 18 minutes. It is 58 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠354.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠9.3°.
12 days after point of perigee on 23 July 2036 at 18:38 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 August 2036 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 404 628 km (251 424 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 243 km (252 428 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 24 July 2036 at 11:36 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2036 at 06:48 in ♒ Aquarius.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 4 August 2036 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.865°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.867° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 August 2036 at 10:50 in ♋ Cancer.
In 1 day on 7 August 2036 at 02:49 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
